Here are the details on Black Snow:
Often called the ultimate backstage novel, Black Snow was based on Bulgakov’s own experiences with the Moscow Art Theatre and its famed director Stanislavsky, inventor of Method acting. As the publisher notes, “Scenery is chewed, fits are thrown, and the show just might not go on.” The Wall Street Journal wrote, “Mr. Reddin has crafted an incredibly funny and effective farce from Bulgakov’s railings against the autocrats and institutions.”
Black Snow was originally by Mikhail Bulgajov and adapted for the stage by Keith Reddin. The Meadows production was directed by Blake Hackler.
